The U.S. Department of Education today announced new regulations to safeguard student privacy while giving states the flexibility to share school data that can be helpful in judging the effectiveness of government investments in education.

“Data are a powerful tool needed to improve the state of education in this country,” said U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan. “At the same time, the benefits of using student data must always be balanced with the need to protect students’ privacy rights and ensure their information is protected.”
